Uncontained engine failure... probably a turbine or compressor rotor. The pilots have lots to say about it.

I suggest you look a little closer at that site, a good many posters are not pilots. The pilots are in a private section which many cannot access, no big surprise given the amount of head-cases that post there.

True... and a good many posters ARE pilots... just need to separate the wheat from the chaff.

They do have a large notice at the bottom of every page, noting that there may be impostors.

Yes many of them are pilots, and I keep in touch with my ex Army pilots through that site and also the armyaviation.co.uk site

Though I didn't know about any separate login for pilots. You can mostly weed them out and many of them are actually aircraft technicians and pilot wannabees. It's actually quite a useful website for finding lost friends in aviation.

No way price will drop! Will need some stability appears to be a design fault.

Plenty of time to pick it up again.

"Airline Specific Private Forums" near bottom of page. Seems to be for certain pilots and airline employees.

The A380 has already proven to be an albatross for Airbus. It was already unlikely that they will ever produce enough planes to even cover costs, and more bad news will ensure that orders drop to a trickle, even if it was an engine failure.

Lots of good questions can be asked about the A380 construction like, "how is it that a containment failure in engine #2 causes the cockpit to lose control of engine #1?"

I'd be selling Qantas shares.

Qantas has always been plagued with maintenance issues, fuel leaks, etc over last couple of years.

At one stage they appeared on the news almost on a weekly basis.

It's much harder for them to cover things up compared to some other airlines. *cough cough*

I think we have to respect the fact that Qantas have acted quickly, unfortuanetly they have found more engines with faults 3 in total as the present time, the others leaking oil, were oil should not be. Shares are on the way down.

I would think that other airlines may try to avoid the media, though it looks like a common design fault on this aircraft
